of my career when i started doing more things in -- outside of just indian country, unless it was nonnative audiences, i always had to create a space for people to ask any question they wanted to ask, and you would get all sorts of questions. i know they've been dying ask those questions, and so in your book, you cover a lot of those questions, and i was glad to see that. in the beginning in the introduction, you called yourself an ambassador, and i thought you could share why an ambassador and what do you see your role in -- in that role, what prompted you to write this book? >> guest: great question. first of all, it's horribly unfair that anyone should ever be an ambassador for their people. one of the issues that comes up, especially with native american history and culture, is that there is no such thing as the native view. so, it's a loaded question to say, what do indians think about per capita payments or whatever. at it like saying, what do white people think about abortion, good or bad, and of course it's not that simple. there's a diversity of opinions, you know.

native american indian and the western. (alphonso ortiz) western films perpetuate the notion in american minds that the indian is the enemy. the indian is the embodiment of the "other" to the american. i've sat with navaho children, watching grade-b westerns and when the cowboy or cavalry comes over the hill, they start clapping like mad. indians were defined uniformly as being in the way of the orderly march of progress and civilization. see this is how thorough the cultural conditioning is. (arthur penn) the indians had been portrayed throughout most of the westerns as these wild-blooded savages, who were given to all kinds of criminal, unchristian acts and dastardly deeds. i don't understand it, grandfather, why would they kill women and children? because they are strange. they do not seem to know where the earth's center is. the fact of the matter is that we were covering up a large part of what would be construed in modern terminology as a kind of genocide, that we were conducting, which was simply taking territory from these people.
